8 Artistes Selected for MusicTT's Spotlight
Port of Spain, 29th May 2020: The Trinidad and Tobago Music Company Limited (MusicTT) hosted its very first Limited Edition Digital (L.E.D.) Spotlight Showcase where 8 winners were selected be a part of the 3rd edition of Spotlight: an Artist Portfolio Development Programme.
The Showcase, hosted by Chromatics, ran simultaneously across three online platforms: Facebook, YouTube and Webinar Jam. Over 700 persons tuned in from the comfort and safety of their homes to watch the 14 finalists perform for a chance to secure a spot in the Spotlight Programme. Each artiste brought their own unique style, energy and vibes to their performances which were evaluated by the three independent Judges: Glenda Collens, Anson Pro and Rome.
Due to the stiff competition resulting in two ties, the winners were increased from 6 to 8 artistes. Advancing to cohort 3 of the Spotlight Programme are Aaron Ifill, Aisha, Alethea, DNA 868 Muzik, Juss Lizz, Leah, Mahalia Thomas and Monique LaChapelle. These winning artistes will receive Music Business capacity development training in areas such as entertainment law, branding and marketing development, music business, interview techniques, and many more areas to complement their raw talents as well as have access to local and international networking opportunities.
“A hearty round of applause to all 14 artistes that performed at the Showcase. It was a difficult decision but the judges were able to select the 8 artistes who are now members of Spotlight cohort 3. We certainly have a unique crop this year and welcome the addition of our instrumentalist to the fold. We look forward to working with them and giving them the support and training they need to take their music career to the next level. As always, we will continue to provide support to our alumni as well in their ventures and hope that they are able to pass on the knowledge learned to their colleagues” stated Melissa Jimenez, General Manager MusicTT.
